Topsham people put their dancing shoes on to raise money for Hospiscare.

The ‘Hospiscare Hop’ took place at Matthews Hall, with guests dancing to the music of local 10-piece band One Foot in the Groove.

There was also a jive class by Floorplay and a disco by Gerry Hannaway.

The event was organised by the Topsham Hospiscare Support Group, and £1,300 was raised.

The group’s Peter Morris said: “A big thanks for the success of the evening are due to all those who gave their time.”

The group’s next event will be a skittles evening on March 24. For more information on events in the area visit
